Your business’s waiting room is almost always its first impression on visitors. Shouldn’t it make a good one? Everyone deserves a beautiful office, whether your business is struggling to stick to a tight budget or to find enough storage space for everyone. Whatever your problem in the waiting room may be, you can bet there’s a reception desk that will help solve it.


Problem: I need to make a big impression on a small budget.

Solution: A compact RTA reception desk will get the job done without any bells or whistles.

Whether it’s in your personal life or in business, sticking to a strict budget requires sacrifice. Is it as fun as spending freely? Well, of course not, but it’s necessary, and it doesn’t mean you can’t get a beautiful reception desk that will fit with your lobby. We recommend going with a desk that’s smaller than typical reception desk dimensions, which measure about 72” wide. A compact reception desk measures closer to 48” wide, making it smaller than average but still perfectly capable of accommodating one receptionist comfortably. Best of all, you can usually find a compact reception desk in just about any style. And although you’re getting the look and the functionality that’s needed, you’ll save your business some money. Smaller office furniture typically means a smaller cost, and by selecting ready-to-assemble furniture over fully assembled desks, you’ll save on shipping costs too.

Problem: I need a front desk that can accommodate multiple receptionists for my growing business.

Solution: Modular reception desks can be extended to accommodate more front desk staff as your business grows.

If your business is expanding and your front desk is getting busier and busier, you may decide that you need to bring on a second receptionist in the near future. Choosing a modular reception desk is great for this purpose since you’ll be able to buy a single user desk to start and simply add onto it when additional help is needed. Reception desk design plans for modular units are usually ready-to-assemble, saving you money and making add-ons easier.

Problem: I need a polished, high end look, and my receptionist needs enough storage for paperwork and personal belongings.

Solution: A large statement reception desk with tons of built-in storage provides the best of both worlds.

If storage and style are what you need, go for a large statement reception desk with built-in storage. Some front desks incorporate built-in wardrobes for personal belongings as well as filing and storage for paperwork and office supplies. Of course, storage can be added to nearly any desk in the form of a mobile pedestal or standalone wardrobe, but there’s something to be said for a piece that has it all.
